I would suggest joining Groupon and other group-coupon sites in your town. I was able to try out a local health and wellness center for one month for only $25, and then at the end of the month I was given a $100 towards their $125 membership joining fee, so it only cost me $25 to join.
Of course, not every gym in every town will decide to do a Groupon, but it can't hurt to sign up (it's free).
Even though I normally wouldn't think I could afford a gym, I rationalized it that if it helped me lose weight and be more fit, I would save money in the long term.
